Receiver AJ Green, who recently signed his one-year franchise tag with the Cincinnati Bengals, believes he can still play at an elite level for at least four more years.

“I have at least four, four great years left in me. Great years,” the Bengals wideout said in a conference call with local reporters on Friday, per “I mean, I always said I wanted to play 15 years, but coming now, I am like, ‘Man, maybe I can play more.’ I’ve got my body where I feel good, so we’ll see. We’ll take it year by year. When I’m done playing, when I seem like I’m retiring, I don’t love the game anymore. I still love the game. I still love the practice, so when that goes away, then I’ll be done.”

Green missed the entirety of the 2019 campaign due to torn ligaments in his ankle. However, the Bengals star believes everything happens for a reason — even his past injuries.

“I’m a level guy, so everything happens for a reason,” Green added. “That’s how I look at it. If it’s going to happen, it’s going to happen.”

When Green is healthy, he’s arguably one of the top receivers in the NFL. In his first seven seasons in the league, he recorded six seasons with at least 1,000 receiving yards. Overall in his professional career so far, he has an impressive 63 touchdowns.

Fortunately for AJ Green, he’ll have Joe Burrow — the No. 1 pick of the 2020 NFL Draft — throwing to him this season. With that being said, the 31-year-old is bound to have a statistical resurgence in 2020 if he stays healthy.
